Global Design Project 147 | Theme Challenge I #GDP147 | Stampin' Up! Stitched All Around

Hey there stamping friends! Welcome to my little part of the world wide web, sharing what I love!
Today I'm playing along with this weeks fun theme challenge over at the Global Design Project | #GDP147 - Country/ Farm Life.

The things that I think of when I think of country are timber, rustic, burlap and lace, gingham, linen thread, sewing and stitching and that's what I've tried to incorperate into my card here today, that Country Rustic look.

Fun Fact - I grew up on a dairy farm as a child, living in a big old farm house with those fabulous high celings but was super draughty with us kids having to help around the farm most days (especially in the school holidays). Lots of fond and fun memories of life on the farm with all the cows!

 I started with a piece of the Wood Textures DSP and then embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder for added texture to the DSP. I love the look embossing folder gives to the DSP to make it look more life like and like real wood. For more fun and texture, because embossing the Wood Textures DSP wasn't enough, I flicked a mixture of Tombow and Water over the DSP using and Aqua painter and then poured Copper embossing powder over. Heat the embossing powder like normal till the powder melts like normal and then you have a fun metallic splattered look.

The big Stitched Label I die cut out of Very Vanilla and then sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake ink for more of that rustic and rugged look. The Cross Stitch stamp has been stamped on the Very Vanilla with Petal Pink ink and then layered over that is Burlap Ribbon, Very Vanilla Lace Trim, Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon (Retired), Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon and a piece from the Frames Elements. Loving the layering of all that ribbon and trim together and how stunning is the Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink colours together. I'm still getting used to the new Colour Revamp, new colour combinations and what goes with what. I'm loving the how these two colours look together though! Pretty!

The Sentiment Circle, saying 'You are my Sunshine, My Only Sunshine' is White embossed on Soft Sea Foam and then layered over that is a  Corrugated Element heart with the heart from the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies and the teeny tiny wooden heart is also from the Frames Elements. All finished of with some Pearls and Rhinestones. Lots of layers and elements but lots of gorgeousness too.

  1. Great card Rochelle! Love how you embossed the Wood Textures paper, tfs!

  2. Such a sweet little card, love it <3

  3. Counter balance of the wood textures and the soft, lacey textures is great. I will have to try this idea with the Tombow glue spattering and embossing.

  4. I love the background you created with the DSP, great tip with the embossing powder, will have to try that!
